CAL FIRE is one of the key pension cases currently pending in the California Supreme Court. The case implicates the so called “California Rule” – which under current case law significantly restricts the ability of public agencies to adjust pension formulae. (See our previous article here.) Renne Public Law Group authored an amicus brief in the case on behalf of the California League of Cities.
CAL FIRE is the lead Supreme Court case implicating the California Rule to be scheduled for oral argument. The case is now set for oral argument in Los Angeles on December 5, 2018 at 9:00 a.m.
